Maloney - Just Shut Up And Fight For Place

Maloney - Just Shut Up And Fight For Place

Every time I warm to this player he opens his mouth and ruins it!

Shaun Maloney has once again stalked about his future after ONCE AGAIN being linked to a return to Celtic.

The Scotland international midfielder, who seems to forget he is paid by Villa and surely shouldn't be rambling on in the press about not being happy, said:

'I've got something to think about. I have started to enjoy the club down south but I've just not played and I don't think that's ideal. One day I'd like to come back and play in Scotland but I have got a few years left on my contract at Villa so we will see what happens.'

He has been linked with a return to Park Head but with two years left on his contract, reports suggest Villa will want considerably more than the £1million we paid for him in the 2007 January transfer window.

Wouldn't it be a refreshing change to read from the young midfielder that he is determined to fight for his place and wants to make an impact at Villa? Is that too much to ask for?

to be fair he is in Scotland for the Czech game & is being asked by the press about his future due to fact he ain't playing every week. He is too good to sit on villa's bench but I couldn't care less what happens to him now. p.s. think that cameo from barry last night will make the liverpool more a possibility. Thought MON had millions to spend ?

The way things are going Villa's squad is gonna be threadbare and i mean threadbare, Barry, Maloney, Harewood and they are already part of a small squad. I'm looking at next season with some trepidation. Our best season for a while is turning out to be more of a curse than progress in regards to Barry

Larsson...He is NOT too good to sit on Villa's bench, because at the moment he isn't good enough to get in Villa's team. End of story. He is a useful squad player.

Dont worry Krisvilla, MON has never let us down in the transfer window before, so i remain convinced that if this players leave they will all be replaced on top of the 7 or 8 players we already need.

Let him go! But for a price fitting of a young international with two years left on his contract. If he's not willing to fight for a place in a squad as threadbare as ours then theres no hope for the kid. I think hes a good player, that offers something different than other players we have, but his attitude and ambition is an issue.

It sounds like we're all getting testy. These windows are damn hard work.

what is maloney's best position? does he even know himself? he's shown glimpses of brilliance accompanied by some shockingly average performances.
